XM and Sirius have engaged in a costly competition to attract media personalities.
Candace Bushnell, right, interviewing Janice Dickinson, the former model, in New York for her Sirius show.



The two companies, which report close to 14 million subscribers, hoped to revolutionize the radio industry with a bevy of niche channels offering everything from fishing tips to salsa music, and media personalities like Howard Stern and Oprah Winfrey, with few commercials. But neither has yet turned an annual profit and both have had billions in losses.

Now they plan to merge. This is the company that makes Bob Dylan's show which is broadcast on Radio 2.

Each sells subscriptions for $12.95 a month. The cost of the combined service is yet to be determined.
